If it’s between keeping things tight or aging gracefully, Kate Winslet will choose the latter, thank you very much.

The Academy Award-winning actress joined forces with other British actresses like Emma Thompson and Rachel Weisz, forming the “British Anti-Cosmetic Surgery League.”

Winslet says the Hollywood obsession with beauty is not something to which she’ll succumb. “I’ll never give in,” the actress told UK's Telegraph.

“It goes against my morals, the way that my parents brought me up and what I consider to be natural beauty.”

Winslet, 35, has been criticized before for her fluctuating weight since she skyrocketed to fame in 1997’s mega hit “Titanic.”

She’s kept a level head throughout the media scrutiny, however, and says she “absolutely refuse[s] to spend any time worrying about what people have written about me in the papers” in a 1999 interview with the UK’s Guardian newspaper.

“Why bother,” the actress said. “Life is too short.”
